Root Canals

If you have a tooth that’s been injured or has decayed, if it looks darker in color, has become sensitive to hot and cold drinks, and is causing you pain, it might be time for a root canal. The gentle dentists at both Va. Beach and Chesapeake Advanced Sedation Dentistry locations are experienced at performing many different dental procedures, including root canals, and can permanently relieve your pain.

What are the benefits of a root canal?

It gets rid of pain. It gets rid of infection. An infected tooth can lead to more problems down the road. A root canal essentially cleans out the damaged or infected pulp in the “canals” of a tooth’s root. It also relieves the pressure caused by inflammation. Plus, a root canal stops the spread of infection to other teeth.

What are steps involved in root canal treatment?

To perform this dental procedure, a dentist removes the infected pulp and nerve in the root of your tooth, cleans and shapes the inside of the root canal, then fills and seals the space. Afterward, you’ll get a crown put on your tooth to protect and save the tooth, and restore it to its original function.

Does root canal treatment hurt?

At Advanced Sedation Dentistry, you’re given anesthesia or sedation (you choose your comfort level) before a root canal procedure, so you either sleep through the whole thing or it’s no more painful than a typical dental filling.

My experience today was so great! I was nervous about going in since I hadn’t been in awhile, but the staff made me feel comfortable and excited to continue to better my oral health. – Tiffany G.

Lize M.

I had a good experience at Advanced Sedation Dentistry after moving here from Ohio and not seeing a dentist for over a year. My dental insurance company recommended them. I feel very comfortable there and well cared for. I am so happy I found Advanced Sedation Dentistry.

Had an absolutely amazing experience with Advanced Sedation Dentistry! I mean when your oldest child comes out after getting teeth cleaned and says “I love coming to the dentist,” those words tell you right there.
